Did the longest punt in football history even happen?

In today’s Big Story podcast, Thomas Pinckard swears that he booted a football 114 yards during a university game in 1966, but it was only a few months ago the accomplishment was acknowledged. Our guest today came across this story and became fascinated by the effort behind Pinckard’s insistence that the punt happened. He joins us today to talk about the rabbit hole he went down, and the potential inaccuracies he discovered along the way.

GUEST: Aaron Hutchins, Maclean’s
